Remembering An American HeroPosted on 10/27/13 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear 2LT Charles Jerry Gaines, sirMORE
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
My Father My HeroPosted on 8/1/13 - by Korby Gaines MannMy how the years have passed. I'm almost twice your age when you gave your life for your country. You are truly missed by me and my brothers. I wish you could have met all your grandchildren and now you have a beautiful great-grand daughter and another one on the way. You are thought of often and missed dearly. I can't wait for us to see each other again one day. I love you daddy...MORE
The Wall of Faces
Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.
All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
